Czech Republic - Spain: prediction "2"

The Czech Republic and Spain will play their first match since 2016, when they met in the group stage of the European Championship. Then the Spaniards managed to deceive their opponent with 1:0 and finished in second place, continuing to the finals, and the Czech Republic remained last and went home.

After the end of the first round of the League of Nations, the unexpected leader in Group 2 of League A is the Czechs. The upcoming hosts managed to win at home with 2: 1 against Switzerland. In the eleventh minute, the Czech Republic took the lead with a goal by Lokomotiv Moscow striker Jan Kuchta, but their opponent managed to equalize in the 44th minute. In the 58th Jibril Sow scored an own goal and this brought victory to the Czechs.

Spain had a difficult task in the first round, as Manuel Ruiz de Lopera hosted Portugal, which before the tournament was considered their main competitor for the first position in this group. Their match ended without a winner after Alvaro Morata gave Spain the lead in the first half, and eight minutes before the end of the match Braga striker Ricardo Orta scored 1:1.

The last defeat for the Spanish national team was in October last year, when they lost to France 1:2. At the time, the two national teams were vying for the trophy from the second edition of the League of Nations. The Spaniards took the lead, but the Roosters managed to turn the game around. France inherited the trophy from Portugal, which was the first winner of the tournament.

Before proceeding to their matches in the current race, the Czech Republic played a control with Wales, which ended in a draw 1:1, but a few days before that the Czechs had an important match, which they lost. It was a semi-final playoff for the World Cup in Qatar. The Czech Republic and Sweden did not score in regular time, but the Swedes did in overtime when Robin Quisson scored.

The Czechs have never before managed to defeat their upcoming rival. In the 21st century, the two national teams have played a total of three matches, all of which ended successfully for Spain. I think that even now the guests will deal with the Czech Republic and will lead the standings if Portugal blows against Switzerland.
